    Aurora shooting: Colorado gun sales up after cinema killings

    BBC News - Aurora shooting: Colorado gun sales up after cinema killings

    The number of people seeking to buy guns in Colorado has soared since last week's mass shooting in the US state's town of Aurora, say law officials.
    In the three days after the shooting, applications for the background checks needed to buy a gun legally were up 43% on the previous week.
    The shooting at a cinema showing the new Batman movie left 12 people dead and 58 injured - 20 remain in hospital.

    At least some people are actually stepping up to take action to protect themselves. Though I bet some of these sales are people getting ahead of any potential gun ban.
